Behind the 8 ball…


There I am again,

Behind the 8 ball,

I really do like to crawl,

All through this tables holes,

Till I am chased by one of the balls,

That may be when I do pop out behind the 8 ball…


Seems my human does not appreciate,

When he is playing for money, me being there,

He says his chances for winning do therein depreciate,

Boy I do declare, he does punish me so unfair…


All I want to do is play with him,

He gets so upset, his playmates just laugh,

I try to make them do so on his behalf,

He is lucky he does not in me own a giraffe…
